Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) has been implemented in many companies to enhance their business performance and customer satisfaction. However, DFSS has not been widely applied to the aircraft industry which operates large, complex development programs. In this paper, the characteristics of an aeronautical product development program are analyzed to figure out the limitations of current DFSS methodology and the prerequisite to deployment of DFSS at the program level is suggested.
